We have a long heritage as a company of serving responsible hunters and sportsmen and women, and we’re going to continue doing so. … My family raised bird dogs when I was growing up in Jonesboro, Ark., and I’m a gun owner myself. We understand that heritage, our deeply rooted place in America and our influence as the world’s largest retailer. And we understand the responsibility that comes with it.
